Walcott and Wilshere start at Red Star in Europa League

How to Watch Arsenal vs. Red Star Belgrade: Live Stream, Game Time, TV

At the back the Arsenal manager picks a three of Mathieu Debuchy, Mohamed Elneny and Rob Holding.

The game was rather tiresome.

Arsenal themselves nearly found a breakthrough in the first half with Egypt global Mohamed Elneny's cross finding Olivier Giroud but his header went wide.

Theo Walcott was the biggest culprit of the night, along with Giroud, as both forwards failed to finish off moves instigated by the brilliant Jack Wilshere.

Following a typical pre-match offering, Red Star's fans bucked tradition and unfurled another huge banner for the start of the second half, but it could not lift the stodgy fare on the pitch.

Arsenal have won all three of the games to open the Group H campaign, and with two home games remaining, Giroud said he believed the Gunners could finished with a 100 percent record. Nemanja Radonjic was found at the back post and his volley was well saved by Petr Cech before Reiss Nelson blocked the rebound.

"Overall, the spirit we showed was remarkable, fighting together in a game that was very physical". Red Star were down to 10 men and Arsenal took advantage of the extra space to score one the the better teams goals you will see. Getting a point would have been an acceptable result, but Arsenal stole all three with this great team goal.

A win in their next Europa league match would secure a place in the knockout rounds for Arsenal, while a win and a BATE draw or loss would clinch the top spot in the group.

Five minutes later, Red Star were in again after poor defending from Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Their next league game is against Everton this coming weekend.
